Academic interests

Interdisciplinary background in physics and materials engineering. Experienced in the synthesis of thermoelectric materials, structure determination, and transport properties. The goal of my current research project is to develop thermoelectric materials with an impact on global energy management by stabilizing with entropy new covalent compounds.
